|Cordell Klier - going forth by day [CYC-026] - Cordell Klier|
Gentle. Deep. Freeing. The masterful qualities shed the old growth of their evocative skins like flowers of frequency. Dropping pedals to nurture the tender foreground of an ever-awakening hopeful landscape. Post digital sputtering ala the late 90’s glitch movement, mixed with an ambient attitude, interwoven into a tapestry of cosmic ease and passive conventional comfort. Cordell Klier shines as usual with this breezy spring-inspired document...

|The Snow Girl [cyc-037] - Anastasia Vronski|
The Snowgirl has two parts. The first part is a bass-heavy, slightly fluctuating drone punctuated by strange synthesizer noises and samples. The second part is more on the noise side, with filtered guitar sounds and more samples. The whole constitutes a kind of portrait of this "Snowgirl," influenced by Dada and Futurist art, as well as Marcia Bassett (from Double Leopards and ZaÐ¿mph).

|The Palace of Gathered Elegance [cyc_039] - Michael Farley|
In August of 2009, our family traveled to Beijing, Zhengzhou, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong while on our second adoption journey. I made field recordings along the way. During the fall, I edited, layered, mixed and processed portions of the recordings for these 9 compositions. I added a guitar part to each one as a kind of commentary and reflection. The titles come from quirky English phrases I saw displayed on T-shirts worn by Chinese kids across the country.

Guitar loops, Mellotron, mood music, and field recordings were used to create textures that are airy and sparse, or scratchy and dense, but usually with some embedded melodic element, all intended to convey an atmosphere of decrepit nostalgia and corroded beauty...
